MOON DEsk: Prime Minister and Awami League President Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday said it is not so easy to dislodge her party from power through pushing, referring to BNP-Jamaat’s scheduled nationwide sit-in demonstration tomorrow as part of an attempt to oust the government.
“They are now saying they will wage a movement from January 11. The most left and right leaning parties have also joined with them. All of them in unison from one place will oust us (from the power). I want to say one thing – Awami League is a party working for the people’s welfare. It is not so easy to push away the Awami League from power,” she said.
The Prime Minister said this while presiding over a discussion meeting organized by the AL at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC) here marking the historic Homecoming Day of Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.
Referring to December 10 last, she said they have created a great panic among the people by saying that they would dislodge the AL government on December 10.
“Their hugely publicized December 10 rally had finally gone to Golapbagh,” she said.
The Prime Minister, however, said that her party has proved that it can topple any party from power if it goes to power through vote rigging and illegally.
“We have proved time and again that the Awami League can do it (topple illegal governments),” she added.
General Secretary of the AL and Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader, MP, gave the address of welcome.
AL central executive committee members Prof Mohammad Ali Arafat and Advocate Tarana Halim, Advisory Council Member Prof Farzana Islam, noted actor Ramendu Majumdar, Dhaka South and North City AL President and General Secretary Abu Ahmed Mannafi and SM Mannan Kochi, among others, spoke in the discussion.
AL Publicity and Publication Secretary Dr Abdus Sobhan Golap, MP, moderated the discussion.
On this day (January 10) in 1972, Bangabandhu, the undisputed leader of the nation and supreme commander of the country’s Liberation War, returned to the sacred soil of independent Bangladesh from London via New Delhi after 290 days of captivity in Pakistan jail.
